During the full moon day of February before the sun sets captured first two images which shows she is putting the sun in scooter and than moon rose just after sunset and sky was neither too bright nor to dark so it was the best condition to capture silhouette with moon. It was my dream to bring sun and moon together in one art and was very happy to execute this thought.
Photography is something which was in my mind since quite a young age and I used to tell myself whatever field I chose in the future, photography would be a hobby. Year by year, the craze for photography increased and I started to learn more about it, but later on, the pandemic happened. All I had was a few places in my town to shoot, so I started sharing the same sunset from the same place with different ideas and got into the habit of doing sunset photography.
The journey in sunset silhouettes actually started when I got an opportunity to use a DSLR for the first time. I was very fascinated using it and had a thought that if I got a camera, it would be a game changer for me, but also knew we couldn’t afford college fees and a DSLR at the same time, so I used to borrow my friend’s camera to learn and also bought a camera on rent. I kept clicking at sunset, but eagerly needed my own camera to get better at this, so I decided to buy a camera on EMI and I was like “This is the moment I’ve been waiting for…” and kept moving ahead from there and trying to improve more and more. People on Instagram also helped me by sharing my images and later on, I got featured in an Italian magazine, the show Sukkiri in Japan, a German show, on the ESPN website, and four times in UK newspapers.
